In a recent cover story for Vogue Australia, Hailey Baldwin Bieber opened up about her marriage to pop star Justin Bieber. The 26-year-old model, who was interviewed by her musician husband, shared her favorite aspect of their relationship and offered insight into the effort it takes to make a marriage work.
"My Best Friend in the Entire World"
Hailey Baldwin Bieber confessed to her husband, "My favorite thing about being married is honestly the companionship I feel we have. Genuinely, you are my best friend in the entire world.
There's nobody I would rather spend more time with or do anything with." The couple, who celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary in September, exchanged vows in a private ceremony at a New York City courthouse in 2018, before holding a larger celebration with friends and family a year later.
Navigating Marriage and Family Planning
Despite the companionship and close friendship between the two, Hailey acknowledges that marriage requires effort to thrive. "At the end of the day, like, he's my best friend, but it still does take a lot of work to make it work," she said.
The model also shared her thoughts on starting a family, saying, "I think ideally in the next couple of years we would try. But there's a reason they call it 'try,' right? You don't know how long that process is ever going to take." In a 2022 interview with Harper's Bazaar, Hailey opened up about her and Justin's health struggles, including a "mini-stroke" she experienced and surgery, as well as Justin's diagnosis with Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
Despite these challenges, Hailey emphasized her unwavering love for her husband, saying, "He's still the person that I wanna be rushing back to." The couple has previously shared their aspirations for a young family, with Hailey saying: "We always talked about wanting to be married and be young, and have a young family, and have kids young." As the couple embarks on their fifth year of marriage, Hailey Baldwin Bieber offers a glimpse into the love and effort that goes into her relationship with Justin Bieber.
